Today's local music: Future Islands
Today's local music comes from thousands of miles away.
It's because of a bet KALW made with Baltimore public radio station WTMD about the Super Bowl.
Because the 49ers lost, KALW is featuring Baltimore's local bands on Crosscurrents all week.
Baltimore synthpop trio Future Islands has produced three full-length albums: Wave Like Home (2008), In Evening Air (2010) and On the Water (2011). Keyboardist Gerrit Welmers and base and guitar player William Cashion join vocalist Samuel T. Herring.
Crosscurrents featured Future Islands’ song Tin Man.
